extra crunchy? lol and would a plain RO system be fine for a reef? or would the DI part be a worthwhile purchase?

the D.I. would be an important item to have on your R.O. unit.

I started with just RO. Then got the pitcher, then finally smarttened up and got the DI. The difference is the lowering of phosphates and sulfur going into the tank and fueling algae.

I got my RO Unit for $15 and the di was $5. Now the filters and media were costly. So in hindsight, that is probably one of the few pieces of equipment I would reccomend getting new.
